Yoruba Names

Yoruba names are used by the Yoruba people of Nigeria. The Yoruba people take naming their babies very seriously, and a ceremony is held one week after birth in which the parents, or other highly regarded relatives, choose the child’s name. The Yoruba believe that a child receives the qualities of their name or the namesake, so most name meanings are positive and refer to strength, beauty and joy. Our Yoruba names list contains popularity information, pronunciations and accurate origin and meanings data along with historical tidbits and unique pop culture references for each baby name. If you are looking for a traditional Nigerian name for your baby, look no further than our selection of Yoruba baby names.
